Help with different citation styles including how to format citations.

What is Turabian Citation Style?

Turabian Style is a variation of Chicago Manual of Style that is geared for students and researchers. Like Chicago, Turabian Style is used in some disciplines within the humanities, sciences and social sciences. Additionally, like Chicago Style, Turabian Style shares the same systems: notes-bibliography and author-date.

Unlike Chicago Style's focus on guidelines for publication, Turabian Styles focuses more on the creation, formatting and submission of academic works such as theses, dissertations and research papers.

The 9th edition of Turabian Style corresponds to the 17th edition of Chicago Style, albeit with minor differences geared towards student writing.

Examples of Turabian Style

Since Turabian Style is nearly identical to Chicago Style, you can view basic guidelines and examples from notes-bibliography or author-date systems by visiting their respective tabs. You can also visit Chapters 16 and 17 of the Turabian Style Manual to see more specific examples not included in this Library Guide.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
